New Commercial and Industrial Developments
1. Dakota Aggregates
Dakota Aggregates is mining the western 1,600 acres of UMore for gravel and aggregate over a 40-year period (25 years in Rosemount and the final 15 years in Empire Township). The reclaimed mining site will include a 125-acre lake within Rosemount located on the northeast corner of County Road 46 and Biscayne Avenue.
2. UMore AUAR
The City of Rosemount, Empire Township, and the University have developed an Alternative Urban Areawide Review for UMore Park. UMore covers 5,000 acres, with 3,000 acres located north of CSAH 46 within Rosemount and 2,000 acres located south of CSAH 46 in Empire Township. The three scenarios contained in the AUAR are based in varying degrees on the UMore Concept Master Plan, which plans for a community of approximately 30,000 people.
3. Minnesota Energy Resources Corporation
MERC is currently constructing a new headquarters and operations center in Rosemount. Company leadership will be moving into the facility from a leased space in Eagan. The development will also contain training facilities and conference rooms.
Arby’s and Chipotle are located in a new 4,075-square foot building at the northeast corner of the Rosemount Market Square shopping center on County Road 42. The building features a drive through for Arby’s and outdoor seating for Chipotle.
5. First State Bank of Rosemount
The First State Bank of Rosemount is undergoing a major renovation that will see the drive-up reconfigured to the rear of the building and many updates to the interior of the building, including improvements to make the building ADA-accessible.
6. Flint Hills Resources
Flint Hills began construction of a combined heat and power plant that will allow the facility to produce electricity and utilize the heat generated by that process to support refinery operations. The result will be a net reduction of emissions.
This sheet metal fabrication facility recently received approval to construct a 13,000-square foot addition to its facility that will allow the company to expand its operation in Rosemount.
